Not at all. If you have a uSD slot with sufficient mechanical
clearance (i.e., not an internal card slot, like in the Openmoko
phones) and can use the signals as GPIOs, then UBB will work
there. If the uSD interface is directly connected to an MCU/SoC,
its signals can almost certainly be used as GPIOs.

Similarly, you can use atben in such cases as well. The
requirements for mechanical clearance are harder to meet, but
if it fits, it's a very convenient way to add IEEE 802.15.4,
without having to worry about building the whole RF circuit.
